Good for you. You've been doing the best things for her, with the food you've given her she'll be strong and very well equipped to withstand the cold. Cat's aren't daft, she'll find somewhere out of the wind and frost, maybe even in the shelter you've made!

Cats usually have the sense to find someplace warm, the only thing that's concerning is that some stray cats crawl up the chasis of a car into the engine(because it is warm and holds heat well) the problem is when that person turns on their car. Well you know.

poor thing, maybe you could build her a little shelter to keep the cold wind off her and add lots of blankets,If there is any type of shed or building such as a old barn most cats will go to these places to stay warm, but if the cat is underweight and unhealthy it may get to cold for it, you could contact the animal...

If you can raise the bed off the ground it'll be better still, maybe on a pallet. Expanded polystyrene packaging is great for the job, it's really warm stuff. Cooking foil - under the bed and round the sides & top - will act as a space-blanket and reflect the body heat.

You could also get a heat pad (which you heat in a microwave) from a pet shop or even a hot water bottle will help. Just make sure that the pad or hot water bottle is wrapped in the blanket so the cat can't burn itself.

our cat Other has the same problem. he lives outside. we put out a box with blankets, but he won't use it. Cats probably have enough fur to survive a cold night.

How kind you are ! Outdoor cats grow thicker fur and when it's very cold, they curl up and tuck their noses into their tails,so the cat will be OK as you kindly put a cover and a blanket for her to sleep in. Cats can stand a lot of cold as long as they don't get wet.
